Joe Manganiello – the next Superman?
From werewolf to Superman
There’s buzz that superhot bear Joe Manganiello, who stars in True Blood as the werewolf Alcide Herveaux, could be the next big screen Superman. Insiders say that the 34 year old is on a shortlist to star in a reboot of the comic book hero film series to be produced by Christopher Nolan and directed by Zack Snyder (Snyder is no stranger to hunks, having previous directed the testosterone-drenched, homoerotic-fest that was 300). When asked about the possibility, Joe responded. “I would be honoured. I love Zack Snyder, I love Christopher Nolan.” And we love your pecs, and your eyes, and your legs, and your arms, and… Check Joe out in these pics from a recent Cosmopolitan magazine shoot.
Will Young willing to bed a lady
Openly gay British singer Will Young has revealed that he’s willing to get down and dirty with a woman – but all for the sake of making babies. He told the Daily Star that he’s been inspired to become a father by Elton John and David Furnish recently taking on fatherhood via a surrogate baby. “I think it would be really challenging and amazing at the same time,” he said. Will, added however, that he’d personally prefer to “go down the natural conception route with penetrative sex”. (We’re sure he could find a few girls willing to help him out.) The 32 year old cutie, who is currently single, also told the newspaper he has no problem barring it all, as he did in the 2005 movie Mrs. Henderson Presents. “I’ve got my clothes off before and I’ll do it again for a role… I’m definitely not shy; in fact, I’d say I’m shameless – especially if people are offering me money.”
Lady Gaga’s stinky new fragrance
If rumours are to be believed, Lady Gaga is set to shock the perfume industry (and the world in general). The mega star is reported to be working on her first fragrance (every celeb has to have one these days). But, like everything else from the Haus of Gaga, it will have a twist: No rose petals and fragrant oils for Miss Gaga – nope, she apparently wants her signature scent to smell like “blood and semen”. Yep, you heard it right. Blood and semen. The smell of semen, we’ve discovered, has been included in a perfume before, but not blood. And certainly not blood AND semen! We have no words…
Ã‰dgar RamÃrez Arellano
Who’s that boy?
Those of you who watched the recent Golden Globe Awards will no doubt have taken an interest in a gorgeous green-eyed Latin-looking actor who was nominated for his performance as Venezuelan terrorist Carlos the Jackal in the miniseries Carlos. The stud in question is 33 year old former journalist-turned actor Ã‰dgar RamÃrez Arellano from Venezuela. You might have also spotted him in 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum but Carlos is his first big role – although it certainly won’t be his last. In addition to his apparently impressive performance, the miniseries is also notable for including a VERY nude scene in which we get to see Ã‰dgar in all his glory. If you want to check it out the screen-grabs, click here (warning: NSFW). He is set to portray another dodgy characters, namely the Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, in the upcoming film Killing Pablo. We’ll be keeping our beady eyes on this one…
Portia does Marilyn for Ellen
Ellen is one lucky gal. Her stunning wife Portia has dressed up like Marilyn Monroe and breathily sung Happy Birthday to her on national television – recreating the famous movie legend singing happy birthday to JFK. The performance was screened during Ellen’s recent 53rd birthday celebration on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week. (Yeah, we wouldn’t say that Ellen looks a day over 40 either. Perhaps lesbians age better?) Last year, Portia legally changed her surname from de Rossi to Ellen’s, DeGeneres. Aww…
Grey’s goes musical
If you’re a fan of Grey’s Anatomy (we lost interest some time ago, we must admit) then you may be pleased, perhaps perplexed or even horrified that a musical episode is officially in production. That’s right; a whole episode of the medical drama will be sung by its stars. Last year, the show’s creator, Shonda Rhimes, said that she was thinking about the idea, but now Kevin McKidd, who plays Dr. Owen Hunt, has confirmed that the stars are in studio preparing their musical numbers. “I’ve got quite a big couple of numbers. It’s a one-off episode in Callie’s point of view,” McKidd told TVGuide. He added that the episode will feature songs that have been used in the show’s soundtrack in the past and that it won’t be camp at all. “It’s very dramatic. It’s a very intense episode. It’s not going to be jazz hands and glitter balls,” he insisted. How sad; perhaps a little Glee-style magic might make Grey’s Anatomy seem less.. well.. grey?
Calvin Klein’s Nick Gruber.
Calvin Klein throws boy-toy a birthday bash
Lucky Nick Gruber. The former-porn star and now model and boyfriend to design legend Calvin Klein was spoilt with a mega-21st birthday bash thrown by his 68 year old sugar-daddy. The invite promised to be “the hottest ticket for New York’s gay and fashion elite” and it was indeed. Guests at the studio 54 themed party in New York City’s Indochine restaurant included fashion royalty such as Anna Wintour, Donna Karan, Vera Wang, photographer Steven Klein as well as Olympic gold medallist Evan Lysacek. No surprise that the party featured a hundred male models and 4,500 balloons. Hey if Hugh Hefner is famously celebrated for surrounding himself with nubile young lasses, then why can’t Calvin flaunt a young stud on his arm? Interestingly, Calvin has never officially come out as gay and has twice before married and divorced women.
